- Gives youth with disabilities, parents and professionals a safe, secure and positive online experience every time they log in.
- Removes social barriers and reduces the stigma associated with being different; increasing self-esteem and self-confidence.
- Promotes independence and a better quality of life with learning and skills development.
- Promotes respect, acceptance and inclusion.
Role models and mentors have always played an important role in the online community, sharing lived experience as well as inspiring participation in sports and recreation. Our mentors are not only capable, they are unstoppable!
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
